Anyone who knows me, or thinks they know me, knows that I have far too many Christmas ornaments. And even in the old days with a 9 foot tree many of them were left in the box at the Yuletide trim; and with a much smaller one in our new location even more find themselves nestled amongst tissue rather than pine boughs. And I have vowed more than once that enough was enough and there was not to be another Christmas tree ornament enter the house.
Well that was until I saw this really sweet Danish solider in full dress uniform in the Royal Copenhagen store on Stroget! No I don't mean a real Danish soldier I mean this blown-glass chappie in the busby standing guard outside the Amalienborg Palace. I mean how fine is he going to look seven months from now hanging in a place of honour on the tree????
And I swear, once again but this time I mean it, this is the last Christmas ornament I will buy. Honestly!
